Atrox666 Re:It would be inequal to provide equal rewards (673 comments)

Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcome. Equal outcome quashes excellence as much as inequality of opportunity.

Cops Say NDA Kept Them from Notifying Courts About Cell Phone Tracking Gadget

Atrox666 Re:WTF???? (235 comments)

I guess when they said that they would tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth they committed perjury since they intended to not disclose to the court.

Microsoft Kills Stack Ranking

Atrox666 You're still fighting over the same money (204 comments)

While they don't have to be ranked so strictly you're still fighting over table scraps against your own team.
If everyone surpasses expectations and achieves a good result then everyone deserves to be compensated fairly.

Competition Tests Student-Built Aerial Espionage Robots

Atrox666 Get the military out of the schools (33 comments)

Military money needs to be removed from education. Higher education shouldn't be a competition on how fast you can sell out the planet to fascist forces.
Just cut enough out of their budgets that they can't afford to murder goat herders for profit and plow it into real education.
Geeks need to stop giving away their power and take charge and authority over our own contribution or it will always be used against us.
I'm saying this as a former soldier.

Except if you have your head out of your ass in any way, shape or form.

There are no "rape" charges. They did reopen a previously closed case where he was accused of sexual impropriety involving the use of a condom.

Rice Professor Predicts Humans Out of Work In 30 Years

Atrox666 Re:This thought crosses my mind a lot. (808 comments)

This is why socialism in some form is necessary. If corporations are allowed to own these automated systems (the means of production) then corporations will be free to toss you and everyone you love in the garbage because they don't need you anymore. Why should they let you eat when it's just cutting into their profits unless they are forced to? It's either we share the wealth the workers earned or the rich getting richer and the poor get poorer will reach its obvious conclusion.

Before anyone says it, none of this has anything to do with a Soviet/Chinese style fascist state.That's just what Americans have been fooled into thinking socialism is.

IAU: No, You Can't Name That Exoplanet

Atrox666 You find it, you name it (142 comments)

These guys should have nothing to say about it. It should be the person who finds it gets naming rights, they earned it. If they want to sell their rights that should be their option too.

Bin Laden Raid Member To Be WikiLeaks Witness

Atrox666 Re:Surveillance (212 comments)

Corporate press has an obligation to corporate profit not public service.

This is why it's useless as a fourth branch of government.

Why Forbes Says Immigrants Make Better Entrepreneurs

Atrox666 Breathing dusty air into the American dream (171 comments)

Sure if I wanted to sleep 10 to a room and have a physically injurious work life balance, I can eventually eek out a small chance at a marginally profitable business. All the while large portions of my money are given away to other private businesses like banks and the Fed that will use it to pay lobbyists to work against me with what I earned. It's only called the American Dream because you'd have to be asleep to believe it. -Carlin

Where are the 20 stories of people who lost their homes and families going bankrupt because of the same bankers they are working to make rich?

  Some of these immigrants come from abject poverty and practical slavery. It's no small wonder that they flourish under a merely oppressive regime. It does not mean that it should be idealized into a model of how we should be living our lives. You get one life, if it's spent in misery then you wasted it.

We have a completely technically inept (as in can't work his own computer) CIO.

Google To Devs: Use Our Payment System Or Be Dropped

Atrox666 This should be covered under anti trust (305 comments)

If the government was doing its job they'd be fined hard enough to hurt the bottom line for the shareholders. They wouldn't put up with that crap for long.
